Joking aside, in these hard economic times I do genuinely think the success and ambition of people like Robbie Fowler should be saluted. For our economy to get going again we are going to need people investing in a big way. So I say, arise Lord Fowler, arise Lord Neeson and arise Great Britain!
It's been 34 years between the original recording of my musical version of The War of The Worlds and The New Generation. And it's been quite some journey. One in which the passion and excitement are very much still burning.
